Four years ago Vinyl and Octavia broke up. It was messy, painful and left scars on both of them. Four years on, now one of the most successful DJs in Equestria’s history, Vinyl receives news that Octavia has been in a terrible accident. The doctors say she may never recover from her coma, but Vinyl refuses to believe them. There are all sorts of stories about coma patients who are brought back by the voice of someone they care about, right? No matter what anypony else says, offers or threatens, and no matter what it costs her personally or professionally, she is determined to stay by Octavia’s side and do all she can to wake her.

But four years is a long time, and no matter how many fairytales end with the princess waking up, real life owes no-one a happy ending.

I faved this because I know it will be good. I swear to read it once I have a smidgeon of free time.

#2 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 1 · 3 ·

I'm probably gonna be in tears by the end of this like "My Little Dashie", adding this to my favorites, also, if i may point out a mistake,

“The most significant things in life usually are usually easier said than done. That does not make them any less worthwhile.”

#3 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 4 · 1 ·

...... You have been the second succesor in the entire fandom to make me cry. This.... This a good piece of literature. Take your time, it's rare to see an emotional piece such as this.

#4 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · · ·

Color me intrigued, lets see how this pans out.

#5 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 7 · 1 ·

Time to buy tissues.

#6 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 2 · 1 ·

Seems interesting. Looking forward to the continuation!

Also, was it this one you were thinking of reading on Pony Tales?

#7 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 2 · 2 ·

I love Octavia. Chances are I'm going to be bawling my eyeballs out by the next chapter or so. :raritycry::fluttershbad:

#8 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 7 · ·

If only we had a set nigh-omnipotent gods running this country.

Oh, wait, we do.

#9 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 3 · 2 ·

Very good. I hope to see where this goes.

#11 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 3 · 2 ·

Oh you magnificent bastard. You have no idea what you've done. I have an intense fondness for Miss Octavia. Even so much that my OC adopted her when she was a filly. My heart is going out to this mare. I presume she is going to live? She IS GOING TO LIVE, RIGHT?! RIGHT?!?RIGHT?!?!

#12 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1d ago · 3 · ·

Girlfriend in a coma I know, I know, it's serious....

#13 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 23h ago · · ·

I expect tears of sadness... And that makes me sad :fluttercry:

#14 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 23h ago · · ·

WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP!!!! :raritycry: :raritydespair: :fluttershbad:

#15 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 22h ago · 1 · ·

>>2683450 Just thought I'd tell you how awesome you are for making that reference. Good job!

#16 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 22h ago · · ·

As hard as it may be for me to express myself and feelings accurately, this story is saddening. But, there is a clear silver lining and I say lets watch how it unfolds!

#17 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 22h ago · 2 · ·

...One of them with a backdoor to ponies´ subconscious while sleeping...

>>2683805 One who can bend matter and reality to his will...

#19 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 21h ago · · ·

Damn. I wish I could create something half as good as this. Looking forward to the rest.

#20 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 19h ago · 2 · ·

Well someone definitely knows how to punch me right in the feels with brass knuckles.:fluttercry:

Interesting. Going to wait a few chapters to make judgement, however.

#22 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 18h ago · · ·

You have captured my interest, I eagerly await the continuation.

*Readies large pack of tissues, just in case*

EHUEHUEHUEHUEHUEHUE

#24 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 16h ago · 1 · ·

....dammit, Scribbler. :fluttercry: You already got me crying. Lord knows how many tears will be shed in the next chapter, and others to come.

#25 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 15h ago · · ·

>>2683741

Thank you, The Smiths are one of my favorite bands :pinkiehappy:

#26 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 15h ago · 2 · ·

Who the hell is downvoting all the comments? Anyhow, this is very nicely done -- I've a feeling it will tapdance all over my feels, and I'll enjoy every sad minute of it.

Also: we still need Vinyl/Tavi emoticons.

#27 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 14h ago · · ·

Being one of the feminine types of guy (not gay but feminine) I like stories like this so I'll just prepare my feels. * grabs girlfriend,  blanket, and large box of tissues*

#28 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 13h ago · · ·

I don’t want to be a dumb trombonist.

Hey! I'm a trombonist and that makes me laugh!

#29 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 13h ago · · ·

This is good. I know for sure I'll shead tears during this as well, and I hope we get a happy ending.

Room 219 eh, I see what you did there. :twilightsmile:

Looking forward to the next update :)

#30 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 12h ago · 1 · ·

My only comfort is that this story lacks a tragedy tag. Carry on.

#31 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 11h ago · · ·

>>2684996

It sure is tragic that Vinyl missed her concert.:pinkiecrazy:

#32 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 11h ago · 1 · ·

>>2685155

Screw the concert! Tavi's in danger!

#33 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 10h ago · · ·

I applaud you sir, I don't normally cry, but sometimes even the toughest nut must crack!:fluttercry::raritydespair:

#34 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 9h ago · 1 · ·

>>2685344 Excuse me, but the author is a lady :raritywink: I should know because I drew the cover for her :)

#35 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 9h ago · · ·

Aw, crap dicks. That was a sad one.

You get an upvote.

#36 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 7h ago · 7 · ·

All aboard the Manly Tears Express. Next stop Feelsburg.

#37 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 7h ago · · ·

Yes!

Finally, something that isn't a happy story for the two.

'Cause that's never happened before, right?

...

Right?

But, no, seriously, one of the best stories I've read on Fimfic so far.

I guess having Octavia as best pony is a good thing

#38 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 6h ago · · ·

Octavia and Vinyl are best. Good work

#39 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 5h ago · · ·

>>2685537 you did? I happen to be looking for a cover artist for my own stories, would you be interested?

#40 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 5h ago · · ·

>>2685537 I've been looking for some art for my stories too.

#41 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 4h ago · · ·

If your intent was to set the stage for a hell of a sadfic, you've done it, ma'am. Good work, hope to see more soon. :yay:

#42 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 3h ago · · ·

Alright, I'd put a rant about why OctaScratch is bullshit and the same applies for "muh opposites attract" but if it didn't work out?

...I will read this. Be right back.

EDIT: Can't rate it yet. I feel like I know what's going to happen.

Will keep an eye on this, however.

#43 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 3h ago · · ·

>>2685537 You must be mistaken, there are no women in this fandom, just 40 year old fat gay pedophile men.

#44 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 3h ago · · ·

>>2686131

I agree, this is already shaping up to be a great story.

Oh, and if you want a sad Octavia fic, I recommend A Puppet to Her Fame.  It's glorious.

#45 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 3h ago · · ·

I will track this.... for now

#46 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 2h ago · · ·

;n; i keep finding sad fics.

#47 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 2h ago · · ·

This reminds me of I Am Octavia. Like what if after the concert, all this happened:rainbowderp:

#48 · Chapter 1 · 63w, 1h ago · · ·

>>2685344

Yeah... The only story I've ever cried at after reading was related to MLP... I just feel for those ponies, ya know? :raritycry:

#49 · Chapter 1 · 62w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>2687274 Amen, Brother. :ajsmug:

#50 · Chapter 1 · 62w, 6d ago · 1 · ·

>>2687274

I WAS THINKING

THE. EXACT. SAME. THING.
